How to Find Work at Home Jobs Online


here are many reasons why you might be considering a new career. I won’t go into them all now; the circumstances are different for everyone. However, if you are anything like me, you may have been pondering the idea of working for yourself. I was in a dilemma over this for a while, until I made the decision just to go for it.

With very few people these days, not online at home – smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers, are in virtually every home – more and more people are looking into work at home jobs online. If you have access to a high-speed internet connection and a computer, you can use it to find not only jobs in general but ones that allow you to work online, from the comfort of your home environment.

Different Types of Work From Home Jobs

There are many different areas of work you can venture into – such as content writing; completing surveys for money; freelancer jobs; website testing; online tutoring; blogging; transcription; translation and internet research jobs. All of these can be done from your home computer. You can also sell virtual or physical products from an online store. You don’t even need to own the products – you can do dropshipping, or affiliate marketing.

If you do want to build an online business but don’t know the first thing about it, my suggestion would be to join a training platform – another thing you can do from home and in your own time. I have reviewed a couple so far and will be constantly looking to expand on this area of the site.

The world is your oyster, as they say.

How to Know if That Potential Work From Home Job is a Scam

The internet can be a minefield in the search for good, legitimate, work possibilities. It can be hard to tell whether something is a scam or not. Earlier on in my search for opportunities, I did make some costly mistakes that got me nowhere. This is the reason I started this website.

A few basic pointers are: do your research online first – read reviews, testimonials, check out the company on social media – and never pay for a job upfront. Most importantly, trust your instinct when making your decision.

  1. Hey Suzanne.

    Like yourself, I have been online for several years now.

    If you have an internet connection, then there truly is endless ways to start working at home.

    I especially love the fact that you mentioned looking out for scams in this post tho. I wish I could tell you how many of them I have fallen into and thrown loads of money at with no results what so ever.

    There are so many websites out there just telling everyone that everything and anything is the absolute best way to make money online… It’s refreshing to find honest advice like yours for a change.

    Just wondering, besides the training from the Wealthy Affiliate University to Build an online business… What other skills do people learn there that they could take home even if they do not stick around long enough to build their own online business?

    Could the training be used for finding work online as well?

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Marc Parsons

    1. Now that’s a question Marc, Wealthy Affiliate offers so much it’s difficult to put into words really…you learn writing skills, all about SEO and marketing – and you most definitely WILL be more attuned to identifying scams that are littered about the Internet.

      To be honest though if a person goes through the Wealthy Affiliate training, they will create a profitable business and won’t need to look elsewhere for work.


  2. Hi Suzanne! I like your idea of choosing an online job in an area you’re familiar with, which is good if you don’t really know there to start. And I also really like the flexibility that working at home gives you. I’m currently working on building a business online with the help of Wealthy Affiliate, and I’m looking forward to being able to work from home full time…hopefully soon :). All the best!

    1. It made sense to make a website about working at home Stephanie seeing as it’s what I do everyday myself.

      I’m sure if you apply the training available at Wealthy Affiliate you too will be working at home full-time very soon.

      All the best

  3. Thanks for sharing this information Suzanne. You did a wonderful job of showing the different ways to make money online. For someone that does not want to pursue an awesome program like Wealthy Affiliate, there are other options. Thank you for your informative post!

    1. Glad you like it…and yes there are many ways to make money online, why I like Wealthy Affiliate though is because it teaches you everything you need to know in order to build a business for yourself – I do like to be the boss of what I do 🙂


  4. Suzanne,

    What a site! This is possibly the nicest site I have ever seen, it is sublime.

    Well planned and executed, you have a really nice, also effortless writing style that makes reading your content a pleasure.

    The content is flawless and i can leave your site knowing that I have learned a lot and feel more confident about the Wealthy Affiliate Program that you have introduced here.

    Thank you very much.
